While many observers in both parties and on both left and right leaning media sites have concluded exactly what law enforcement has said the debate continues whether Edward Snowden's actions in stealing and revealing top secret material to the foreign press and the communist Chinese is treason or just criminal.
And though nearly everybody agrees that what he did was criminal, Congressman Moonbeam Massie from Kentucky has yet to retreat from his call that Snowden not be prosecuted, following of course Ron Paul labeling this traitor as a hero.
Does Massie's support for Snowden mean that Massie thinks it's okay for guys like Snowden to make unilateral determinations of what laws one will and will not obey? Would Massie do the same thing if he came into possession of national security information ? Doesn't this raise a substantial question regarding his own trustworthiness?
So far he hasn't removed the facebook post or retracted his support for Snowden. Shouldn't he address this issue before others begin to call his defense of criminal acts "anarchist-like" statements which could cause people to see him as just another dangerous crackpot? Isn't this the same kind of problem that kept Ron Paul from ever getting anywhere?
What do you think?
